Joy. Creativity. Adventure.


I LOVE Family Photography Sessions at the Puyallup Fair!

It’s baaaaack! One of my very favorite places to shoot at… The Puyallup Fair! Oh man, there’s so much photography goodness about the fair! It’s a great place to capture kiddos having a blast and being themselves, couples snuggling up all cute and cozy on the ferris wheel, and I love the all the bold colors everywhere for high school senior sessions!

My husband and I went this week and I was quickly reminded of everything I love about shooting there. Here’s a couple quick iphone shots of my husband and I “doing the Puyallup” this week, followed by some professional images from one of my favorite family sessions there last fall.

If you’d like to schedule a session with JP Photography at the fair this year, contact me ASAP!

The Munoz Family // Tacoma Family Photographer

I am so excited to introduce to you….. The Munoz Family!! I love these guys, and so does my camera! : )  Being the thoughtful people that they are, they gave these photos to their kiddos’ grandparents as Christmas gifts, such a great idea! Although, I must admit, the suspense in keeping these photos off of my blog and Facebook Page until after Christmas has been killing me! : ) So here I am, December 26th, sharing the story of their session with you at my first opportunity!! Enjoy!!!

We had some interesting obstacles to face during our session, but they weren’t about to stop us from a fun and adorable Family Session…!

Obstacle #1: Unexpected bike race!!!

We arrived to our location to find that it had been taken over by a bike race! The lawn was turned into a parkling lot and the trails full of bikers! We thought we started near a trail where the bikers had already passed by, turns out that wasn’t the case : ) So we got our shot, cheered them on, and boogied out of there!

Obstacle #2: Rain!

The Pacific Northwest can make sessions tricky, but with a can-do attitude, an umbrella between shots, and a little creativity we can make it work, and look good doing it! I bet you can’t even tell it was raining in these photos, right?

And holy moly, how CUTE are these kids?!

Their dad, Jesse, and I run the youth group together at our church. And he is an AMAZING artist and webdesigner! Keep an eye out for my new logo on the way, he’s the artist behind it! : )

This next one isn’t my typical editing style. It was a test shot I did on the lighting and it was a tad over exposed. So I just had some fun with it in Photoshop and cropped it in real close to mix it up. She has such beautiful eyes!

How can you look at that adorable face and not smile? I don’t think it’s possible. I felt so happy the whole time I was editing these photos with these joyful faces smiling back at me!

Aurora // Tacoma Newborn Photographer

I am excited to introduce to you… beautiful baby Aurora! This little girl visited me for photos when she was just 6 days new. I was very eager to meet her as I did a fun Maternity Session for her mom and dad just a month or so before. I had a great time getting to know mom and dad at their first session, I was so excited for them and happy to meet their little girl.

Aurora is an October baby (just like me!) So we had to get some cute fall shots to capture the feel of the best time of the year :)

She put her little hands up like this herself! How precious is that?!  :)

Mom and dad are in both the Navy. I thought this would be a fun way to incorporate that part of their family. She has the best little smile, doesn’t she?

I am a sucker for white on white when it comes to newborns. Gets me every time. There’s just something about that perfect baby purity that shines so beautifully on white.
